Best Dog Gifts for Christmas [2018]


Your best friend hopes to find something exciting under the tree on Christmas morning.

The very best dog gifts are a mix of functional, durable, and fun. Sturdy dog beds that hold up to constant chewing. Dog crates that are rugged, comfy, and portable. Dog toys your best friend can enjoy well beyond Christmas morning.

How best to choose a gift for the dog or dog lover you know? Consider the pursuits and passions of your two- and four-legged giftees. Is this gift for a hunting dog? The proud owner of a Labrador Retriever? Or, for a friend who hikes with their dog in sun, sleet, rain, and snow?

With our Gifts for Dogs guide pointing the way, you’ll wrap up a merry and bright holiday for your dog and all the dog lovers in your life.

Gifts for Dogs and Dog Owners

An Orthopedic or Fleece Dog Bed

Give your dog the gift of a snug spot to snooze this Christmas with a cozy dog bed that elevates him above cold, drafty floors. Older dogs benefit from orthopedic dog beds that support aching joints and relieve pressure points. For dogs who chew, opt for a dog bed with a ToughChew® cover they can’t destroy.

Our warm and welcoming Barn Coat Bolster Dog Bed with Fleece invites sweet canine dreams with a charming plaid. The three-sided bolster is perfect for dogs who like the extra sense of security or sleeping with their heads lifted. It comes in two cushion options—ComfortFill or therapeutic Orvis Memory Foam, perfect for older dogs and dogs with joint issues.

A Dog Jacket or Parka

When the weather outside is frightful, some dogs need an extra layer of warmth and protection from the elements. The best dog jackets are easy to put on, while shielding dogs from rain, snow, and frosty winds. When brightly colored and appointed with reflective accents, dog jackets also make dogs more visible when hunting and hiking, or taking walks at night.

The performance All-Weather Dog Parka is designed for dogs eager to bound outdoors through the winter. The parka features 3M™ Scotchlite™ reflectors for increased visibility at night, as well as Houndtex® laminated outdoor fabric that blocks wind and rain while wicking moisture.

Dog Crates for Home or Travel

You give a dog a comfy and comforting den with the gift of a dog crate. This is where dogs go for quiet time, for rest after a long day, for a sense of security. Look for dog crates that feel sturdy when moved, are simple to open and close, and have comfortable padding on the floor.

The Orvis Field Collection Folding Travel Crate is thoughtfully constructed to keep your dog safe and comfy for the journey—whether you’re heading upland hunting or to the local dog park. The rugged crate also collapses with ease, so you can store it in between trips, or use both at home and on the road.

Gifts for Dog Owners

Memorable gifts for dog owners show you understand (and don’t judge!) how much the recipients adore their four-legged best friends. Consider a basket of various dog toys and treats, a dog throw blanket, or glasses etched with ‘Rescued Human.’

Elegant Dog Breed Glasses artfully etched with canine silhouettes make excellent gifts for dog owners with an unabashed preference for specific dog breeds. Labrador Retrievers, Irish Setters, Pugs. If you find their favorite breed, these glasses are bound to charm.

Hunting Dog Gifts

Bird dog supplies and gear make thoughtful gifts for sporting dogs and their owners. Whether you give them upland hunting training gear or performance dog jackets, you’ll show you appreciate their passion for wingshooting.

Car Seat Protectors

Odds are your favorite hunter and gun dog jump into their car or truck often to head upland. Help them keep it free of mud and muck from the field with our durable Field Collection Hammock Seat Protector. It’s as easy to install as it is to remove and toss into the washing machine.

Outdoor Dog Gifts

Outdoorsy dogs might benefit from a tough dog jacket for hiking, while their humans are sure to appreciate the convenience of a dog travel bowl. When a love for dogs and the great outdoors intersect, opt for trail-ready gifts and you can’t go wrong.

Dog Boots

Ruffwear® Summit Trex™ dog boots make a great gift for frequent, four-pawed hikers. These dog boots protect paws from jagged rocks, sharp sticks, hot pavement in summer, and ice-melt salt in winter. Easy to put on and very comfortable, these dog boots feature rubber grips and reflective trim to improve traction and visibility.

Personalized Dog Gifts

Scout, Rupert, Jordan, or Addy. A dog gift becomes one of a kind (just like your best friend!) when personalized. Have a cozy dog bed embroidered with your dog’s name, or give yourself the gift of a glass tree ornament etched with your dog’s name.

Personalized Dog Collars

The Personalized Reflective Dog Collar is a gift with purpose. Embroidered with a dog’s name and the owner’s contact information, this collar gives a lost dog a better chance of returning home safely. The reflective material also keeps your dog, or your friend’s dog, visible in low light and at night.

Dog Stocking Stuffers

The most fun gifts for dogs fit right inside their Christmas stockings. Dog treats, puzzle toys, LED balls for games of fetch after dark, and squeaker toys are all good choices.

Granted, our Super Size Fleece Holiday Bone won’t fit in his stocking, but it will spread holiday cheer through the season while your dog happily carries it from room to room. This tough dog toy in a jolly red fleece stands up to rough chewing and play, and has a squeaker that won’t give out.

Orvis gifts for dogs are designed to provide fun, sport, and comfort for your furry best friend, and engineered to last through the seasons. We wish you and your dog the happiest of holidays!
